In between

No really, the buses are running! You cannot see at what time they will go at the moment but the blank area where times should be will be full in a short while. It is just for a couple of minutes that nobody knows when the buses leave. Claire caught busdriver Costas at the moment that he was changing/adding the bustimes for the full season.
Thanks Stephen and Claire for the photo. Skopelosnews loves it when readers participate in the blog like this.

“Soon after moving from London to Glossa in 2005 with her husband, Matthew, Sarah Bloxham found a rat. Not a live rat, but a petrified rat in the plaka by the church in the Central Square of Glossa. It was not even a real petrified rat, but it was so striking that it inspired Sarah to write a children’s story set in a fictional Glossa of long ago.
She persuaded people of various nationalities with houses in the area to illustrate the book and translate the English text into four other languages – Greek, French, German and Italian. All the work was done voluntarily in the hope that the book would be published one day and the proceeds devoted to traditional village celebrations which are not as common as they once were.
Mosxoula Giannopoulou and Antonis Falkis, proprietors of Café – Restaurant Plateia have kindly allowed their kafeneion to be turned into a gallery for the summer. The first exhibition is all about Sarah’s book.

It is open daily from noon until the restaurant closes. There is an opportunity to meet the contributors on Monday 10th July in the Plateia Gallery, Central Square Glossa from around 1 p.m. The exhibition will run daily until the 30th July and admission is free.”

Next weekend the annual dance festival in Glossa will take place. Many dance groups from Greece will be there. The venue is the schoolground in Glossa. They will start around 21.00 hours and the entrance is free.

Back again

Something was missing. It took them two years to get back on their feet after the flood in 2015. They have now reopened their business side by side from Pavlos taverna and Mouria taverna.
Korali is back in business and the modern interior and exterior looks wonderful.


These photos are taken a day after the heatwave stopped and cloud were seen in the sky again! Normally you don’t wish for clouds but oh boy this time we did.

New life

It is great to see that in many streets of the village of Skopelos new shops are arising and filling up the empty spaces that were there for a long time. The shops that were there before now have neighbours again. Take a walk in the village and dare to go higher up in the streets than you have been before. It’s good for your ankles and nice to see all the streets filled up. People are taking a chance again and believe, I think, that the new businesses will run well. We wish them all the best and have a great season!!
